Improve and streamline your data science processes using Microsoft Azure. Growing your understanding of cloud computing concepts and tools can help with the delivery of business-critical data analysis.

Understand the data science applications of cloud computing

Finding and adopting the right tools within your organisation is key to robust and efficient data science projects. Guided by industry experts, you’ll grow your understanding of the different business models for cloud and AI usage of cloud computing.

You’ll learn about general cloud computing concepts, general cloud computing models and services such as public, private and hybrid cloud and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).

You’ll then apply those cloud computing concepts by looking at data science solutions that you can find in Microsoft Azure and Amazon Cloud Services - two market leaders.

Get to grips with the data science options in Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure is home to a suite of products that support data analytics, development, and database creation. You’ll explore the opportunities within the platform, such as Azure Stream Analytics, Azure Synapse Analytics, and Azure Data Explorer.

Discover the possibilities within Amazon Web Services (AWS)
